Atlético Madrid's Miranda, on transfer talks: "We're negotiating"

David Ramos

João Miranda, one of Atlético's best players last season and Barça target, said that he's open to transfer talks and already has some offers on the table

One of Barça targets for next season, Atlético Madrid's centre-back João Miranda admitted that his future may not be as a rojiblanco.

"I've received offers from Spanish and English teams", the Brazilian said in an interview to ESPN. "We're negotiating. My agent is in Europe to decide my future. My buyout fee is set at £30 million, but that can be negotiated, too".

Miranda also expressed his frustration on not being called up to Brazil's World Cup squad. "I'm definitely disappointed. I expected to be selected, and that disappointed me. I feel I'm in a great shape, physically and mentally, and I think I could've helped them. But it's already in the past".

The 29-year-old defender will enter his fourth season in Europe, and has been perhaps the team's defensive anchor in Diego Simeone's scheme since coming to the club in 2011.

Some reports say that the Premier League might be his destination, but Barça is a strong option to consider, given the fact that the Blaugrana have showed their interest and made a formal offer.

What do you think, Barça fans? Is Miranda the best option for the team's defensive needs?
